Good news for webcomic free speech?

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund website recently posted a short article about the latest developments in the Child Online Protection Act (COPA) debate — a bill that would essentially set itself up as a major censor of Internet content, complete with excessive fines ($150,000 daily!) and jailtime.

The federal appeals court has turned down the government appeal, however, defending the original Third Circuit verdict that such a law would be unconstitutionally restrictive for adults.

The government still has 90 days to reappeal the decision.

You can find the CBLDF blurb here, which also links to a full story on the American Civil Liberties Union website.
